Our hearts are heavy and our thoughts are with the community of Robb Elementary School. The tragedy of yesterday’s events are devastating not only to those who live nearest to these events but to everyone who has ever loved anyone. As each of us grapples with this information, please be willing to reach out for help. Please remember that we each process differently and have our own unique ways of coping with tragedy. This link includes information from the National Association of School Psychologists that may help each of us as we speak with students about violence and safety. If you need any support with this conversation, please do not hesitate to reach out to our admin team.
Field Day: We are excited to have Kinder-7th Grade students participate in Field Day rotations at Valley Oak park.
